Found these brackets / braces in a box of bits that came with my car.
I had a quick look in the factory parts illustration manual but nothing caught my eye.
Likewise ran a search on the CJ's webstore under brace etc, and again nothing.

Anyone got any idea what they are? Mustang? My Mustang even? (68 FB/GT)
Thanks in advance. BTW the long one has R stamped on one end...

Top one looks like a shifter linkage.

Bottom one is the center support for the dash (on a 69/70 Laughing )

Thanks Kerry.

I'll check those 2 ideas out. God knows what car the linkage rod is off, it doesn't look like its for my 390/C6.
The 69/70' center dash supports on the web all seem more bendy than mine, but I'd imagine you'd know one when you see one!

As my car came in bits its all a bit of a jigsaw puzzle, I sometimes come across random bits that draw a blank.
However once I pull something apart I usually know its place forever (well pretty much, old age being what it is!).

Middle one looks like a hood latch/radiator support bracket thingy but the bottom mount looks twisted so it may not be.

The center bracket look like a brake booster bracket off a Chev Camaro. Seen a few of those ....... Very Happy

Anything is possible Kerry. A quick web search shows something a bit different shaped but maybe you're onto something there.

So far this car has turned up mopar crank pulleys, F truck brackets & motor mounts and even one Chev rally wheel amongst its pile of odd bits.

I'll check that idea out.
Thanks.
